Nearly one of every 10 midsize or big employers around the country expect to stop offering health coverage to workers once federal insurance exchanges start in 2014, according to a new survey from a large benefits consultant.
The future of employer-provided health insurance is in doubt, according to the above quoted Detroit News story in today's paper.
With the new federal healthcare reform, employers, the story says, will push their employees over to federal insurance exchanges where they can purchase insurance and have it government subsidized if their income levels meet set criterial.
What will this mean for Michigan? Does this make the economic hill the state is climbing more steep? Will it result in more people not having healthcare coverage?
